Description

In the Spirt of Crazy Horse is Peter Matthiessen's chronicle of a fatal gun-battle between FBI agents and American Indian Movement activists in 1975 at Wounded Knee. The 646-page book is the comprehensive history of the desperate efforts by Indigenous people to maintain their traditions and preserve the sacredness of the earth. Peter Matthiessen reveals the Lakotas' long struggle with the U.S. Government, from Red Cloud's War and Little Big Horn to the Indian wars of the 1970s.
